The Entrance

"I Will be Heard" by Hatebreed

“NOW IS THE TIME FOR ME TO RISE TO MY FEET!”

A single, sharp explosion syncs with the opening shout from Hatebreed’s “I Will Be Heard” as the words The Last Man in Wrestling appear on the HOV in a glowing, metallic, shade of 97Red.

“WIPE YOUR SPIT FROM MY FACE, WIPE YOUR TEARS FROM MY EYES!”

A montage of the HOW Hall of Famer is shown on the HOV. A blinding, white light beams from the entryway as Solex steps out from behind the curtain and onto the entrance ramp, the crowd erupting in a cacophony of boos. Solex stands at the top of the ramp, his figure casting an impressive frame against the bright light. His brows narrow and he clenches his jaw as his gaze sweeps across the audience, snarling in the process.

“I’VE GOT TO TAKE MY LIFE BACK, ONE CHANCE TO MAKE IT RIGHT!”

The boos intensify as Solex marches down the entrance ramp. Fans reach out over the barricade attempting to get a touch of the MERCDAD, but they’re hands are left waving in the air as Solex continues his deliberate pace down the ramp, avoiding even a single touch.

As he reaches the end of the ramp, Solex pauses, fists clenched at his sides, a warrior in his element. He stomps up the steel steps, each step reverberating a boom throughout the arena. He methodically walks across the hard camera side of the apron and once he reaches the center, he locks eyes with the camera.

The lights in the arena dim as a spotlight shines down from above and just as the chorus of the song picks back up, the spotlight intensifies and he throws both fists into the air. The veins in his arms, shoulders and chest bulge, the lighting accentuating his impressive physique. The crowd is relentless as they continue to rain down with boos as Solex gives them one last look before stepping through the middle rope and into the ring.

With every eye in the arena fixed on him, Solex marches across the ring to the far turnbuckle and climbs to the second rope and once again, in one swift motion, he throws both fists in the air to another round of ferocious boos from the crowd. He soaks in the hate from the audience as he holds his chin up high. As his music begins to fade he hops down from the second rope and takes up position in his corner.

Description: Solex lifts his opponent into the air, as if initiating a vertical suplex. However, he transitions his grip, repositioning his opponent into a piledriver while they’re still overhead. Solex jumps and spikes his opponent head-first into the mat with tremendous force. (Steiner Screwdriver) Alternate Finisher: Solex catches his opponent off-guard, delivers a kick to the midsection, and then drops them with a jaw-shattering stunner. (Stone Cold Stunner) Submission Finisher:  Camo-Clutch – With his opponent face down on the mat, Solex plants a vicious stomp into their lower back. He then secures his opponent from behind, wrapping his arms around their neck in a seated position. Then, he pulls back with force, arching their spine while applying pressure to the neck and shoulders. (Steiner Recliner)

Additional Information

About the Wrestler

Steve Solex is a HOW Hall of Famer, War Veteran and #1 Dad. Solex has had his issues with multiple personality disorder and more recently, brain cancer. He is a former HOTv Champion and multiple time HOTv Tag Team Champion. Solex is a complete asshole and misogynist prick. He will always point to his military service as something that gives him in advantage in any situation, which a lot of times is true. He’s a Lee Best loyalist and even though he’s been a part of a couple of different factions in HOW, he always finds his way back to the Best Alliance. Solex is often called the MERCDAD and is widely known as The Last Man in Wrestling.

Even though Solex’s wrestling style is primarily that of a brawler with capabilities as a ring general; a mix of power moves and brawling techniques.
